Our goal is to create engaging media content for the online classroom environment. From concept to completion, we will help you create content such as:
- Welcome Videos
- Weekly Update Videos
- Key Concept Lectures
- Lecture Course videos
- Training Videos
Through the Faculty Toolset training, we will empower you to create your own screen-cast as well as videos using a Grab and Go video kit.
Video Requests with Instructional Resources:
- First, you will submit a Production Request through the Unified Request System (URS) via the portal. The production manager will review the request and schedule a needs assessment meeting with you to discuss the video's:
- Style and approach.
- Target audience.
- Desired outcome or learning outcome.
- Define success criteria and metrics to measure effectiveness.
- Delivery format.
- Schedule and scheduling responsibilities.
We ask that you use the audio/video script template from the Faculty Toolset training as your guide when writing your script. The video description is in the left column and the audio/speaking portion will be on the right hand column. On the Video side, include important details that you want shown.
The Day Before the Shoot:
- To maximize time and ensure efficiency, your script will be loaded into a teleprompter (if one is used) the day before the shoot.
- PowerPoint slides also need to be delivered the day before the shoot so they can be loaded onto the presentation computer and tested.
- Practice reading your script out loud. Sometimes words and phrases are more difficult to say that to read. This will allow you to make any adjustments and fix tongue twisters before the day of the shoot.
- Please arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled shoot.
- When you arrive, a production team member will place a lavalier mic on your shirt or jacket.
- You will be taken into the studio and shown the cameras and PowerPoint computer. You will be able to do a quick practice with the prompter and computer to get familiar with both. The crew will also ask you to do a mic check.
- The director will communicate with you over the PA (loud speaker) from the control room. The director will give you a cue to start speaking.
What to Wear (and not wear):
Since you will be wearing a lapel mic, you should wear a jacket or a button up shirt.
Colors & Patterns:
Solid colors work best, but avoid white. Also, avoid fine patterns like checks, herringbone or fine stripes. These tend to create a distracting “moray” pattern on the screen.
Don't wear green clothing! The color green is replaced in editing. Green clothing will make your body disappear – which can be awesome on Halloween - but generally speaking not the best look for a lecture.
An Instructional Resources member will edit and finalize your video.
When the edit is complete, you will be emailed a link to view the video and an embed code that will allow you to embed the video into your course.
